Mnemonics is a cooperative research project of the artists Susana Mendes Silva and Frans van Lent.
The project started with the suggestion of a curator to contact each other, because of their related points of view. After their first meeting the artists decided to cooperate and that collaboration started with a repetition exercise:
They shared two identical car drives on two successive days. These meetings, as much alike as possible, led the artists to the subject of the construction and deconstruction of personal memories. How do memories lead to a journey and how does a journey lead to memories. The human mind as a fluidly changing field of encounters.
The performative presentation of their project will be in English and will take place at Hangar on Friday June 28, 10 pm.

pedro neves marques
public reading: sex as care and other viral poems

Gasworks, 15 Jun
4 - 6pm
No booking required

A public reading with Pedro Neves Marques and writer and researcher Filipa Ramos to mark the closing of Pedro's first UK solo exhibition It Bites Back, which explores the trauma of biological warfare against the backdrop of the Zika virus epidemic and the increasingly palpable threat against queer lives in Brazil and elsewhere. The artist will be reading a selection of poems from his upcoming book Sex as Care and Other Viral Poems.
In Neves Marques’ book, polyamorous encounters and the intimacy of queer lives run parallel to the history of modern science. In his words, 'these viral poems were my own, personal way of projecting politics onto nature and culture. I felt the need for intimacy. The reasons were multiple. I could easily answer it with my own emotional exhaustion—and, much more importantly, of those around me when in Brazil - as well as with my own feelings towards gender, fluidity and feminism.'
